“…Strangely absent from the list of co-sponsors of H.R. 25 is Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX). Representative Paul has consistently been named the “taxpayers’ friend.” If the FairTax proposal was as friendly to taxpayers as its proponents say it is, I would expect Congressman Paul’s name to be first on the list of co-sponsors…”
“…The “roadmap” calls for a far-reaching overhaul of the military’s ability to conduct information operations and electronic warfare. And, in some detail, it makes recommendations for how the US armed forces should think about this new, virtual warfare…”
One member of Congress to pay attention to in the District of Columbia is Congressman Dr. Ron Paul of Texas. Mr. Paul is a staunch advocate of limited constitutional government, low taxes, free markets, and a return to a sound monetary policy based on commodity-backed currency. Fortunately for all of us whether a resident of the 14th district in Texas or not, Congressman Paul fights everyday for true American liberty. He writes an informative, no-nonsense column on current events every week called ‘Texas Straight Talk‘. The following is his most recent column, courtesy of Mr. Paul’s website. After reading it you may want to spend some time looking around the site and learning more.
“…During the counterculture era (1960s-1970s), younger generations opposed authority and were very much at odds with society’s accepted belief systems and standards of living. In the counterculture movement (fueled by the Vietnam War), social conservatives were deemed ‘social repressionists.’…”
“…Depleted uranium has been used for years in construction of weapons, aircraft, ships, buildings and in just about any other area of modern industry where there is a need for an extremely dense and very inexpensive material. Not surprising that the governments around the world have researched at least some health and environmental risks of industrial use of depleted uranium…”
“…Astonishingly, American taxpayers now will be forced to finance a multi-billion-dollar jobs program in Iraq. Suddenly the war is about jobs! We export our manufacturing jobs to Asia, and now we plan to export our welfare jobs to Iraq – all at the expense of the poor and middle class here at home…”
“…If Bush is unable to orchestrate war with Iran directly, he will orchestrate war indirectly by having US troops attack Iraqi Shi’ite militias. Bush has already given orders for US troops to attack the Iraqi Shi’ite militias, who oppose the Sunnis and have not been part of the insurgency. Obviously, once Bush can get US troops in open warfare with Iraqi Shi’ites, the situation for US troops in Iraq will quickly go down hill. Bush will be able to blame Iranian Shi’ites for arming Iraqi Shi’ites that he can say are killing US troops…”
“…The “surge” is merely a tactic to buy time while war with Iran and Syria can be orchestrated. The neoconservative/Israeli cabal feared that the pressure that Congress, the public, and the American foreign policy establishment were putting on Bush to de-escalate in Iraq would terminate their plan to achieve hegemony in the Middle East…”
Charlotte Iserbyt is the consummate whistleblower! Iserbyt served as Senior Policy Advisor in the Office of Educational Research and Improvement (OERI), U.S. Department of Education, during the first Reagan Administration, where she first blew the whistle on a major technology initiative which would control curriculum in America’s classrooms. Iserbyt is a former school board director in Camden, Maine and was co-founder and research analyst of Guardians of Education for Maine (GEM) from 1978 to 2000. She has also served in the American Red Cross on Guam and Japan during the Korean War, and in the United States Foreign Service in Belgium and in the Republic of South Africa.
“…The Democrats are silent as the Bush regime prepares for war against Iran — silent in the face of a potential nuclear mass murder — even a global war. Silent in the face of an attack that could cause an utter meltdown of the global economy, a 1930s style Depression that would send millions, perhaps billions of people into starvation-level poverty, as the prices of oil and gasoline triple…”
